 The $300 million expansion at the General Motors Co. plant in Arlington officially got under way with a groundbreaking at the plant Monday.

The new facility, which is already 3.75 million square feet, is adding 130,000 square feet to the assembly plant where the next generation of sport utility vehicles will be made.

 “It’s just vital to Arlington,” said Mayor Robert Cluck. “We would do anything to keep them here, and we did do some stuff to keep them here.”

The city exempted General Motors from certain taxes and expects to reconcile the uncollected tax revenue with the 100 new jobs the plant expansion creates.
